A clear and up to date talk about the application process.

Dr Danny Lunda Ngandu

Workshop includes

  • presentation and Q&A session on the application process from the GMC's specialist applications team
  • RCP clinical teaching faculty experienced in the portfolio pathway application process
  • up-to-date facts and statistics on application success rates

I was especially glad of the update to the new PP (vs old CESR) system, and I was prompted to study the latest version of my SSG. I am pleased to note the new system seems a lot more user friendly and somewhat less daunting than the old.

Dr Gavin Ross, Locum Consultant Physician, Withybush Hospital, Pembrokeshire
